I am not taking sides on this issue, but you would probably get farther with
this if you submit the patches upstream. CentOS doesn't do a lot of patching
to upstream code unless it is necessary for the build process.

If you get this past RedHat, it will flow down to CentOS. That is the path you
would need to follow.
